My home is in Seattle and I love to leave when the skies are gray..guess that leaves me with tons of travel time. Most of my travel has been alone and done at the hand of political interests. I follow world politics and find the only way to find the truth is to be there. Trips have included Bosnia & Serbia, Georgia & Ukrain, Israel & W. Bank..+ 75 others. No business trips..only vacation time used. I am not a pro, however, photography is a big part of my travel. I also attempt to enjoy the diving when available. Recently I have added a travel mate and my trips have taken a different turn..and I enjoy the turn.
